A WINSOME
VILLAIN
BY JOHN H. RAFTESY.
THE advent of Helen lhirr nsMenog
rapher ere.itcd a (fenuiue sensa
tion in Hotel l'ackinghom. The staid
mannp-er, broad of pminch and tin 1 cl
of head, began to dictate his own let
ter, instc-nd of leaving; fhem to his
ssifctalit. The chief clerk mrpnesed
even his own high standard of sartor
ial splendor nnd curled the ends of his
mustache o higSi that the points
erved him an "a sight" for the ajm
fng of many glances of admiration.
The captain of the bellboys begnn to
throw out his chest and take on the
airs of a grown man, the clarion tones
of "front" became music to the ears
of the "button," for it required a
Hidden appearance within rnnge of
Mise Barr's incomparable eyes. Even
the house detective, the Stewart and
the door men lighted tip, ami as for
the male guests, they suddenly de
veloped into continuous and most vol
uminous letter writers.
Miss liarr wag a beauty, as anyone
eon Id see. Her hair was auburn and
her eyes dark blue. The clerk insist
ed that they were "royal purple," nnd
bet a box of cigars with a bold travel
ing' mnn that she would say so herself
If asked. He lost the wnger, however,
IJpr, when the aanoy question was put
to her, she blushed beautifully, and
said: "I never notictyl, sir." Hut, as
the inquisitor attempted to push his
investigation, the girl turned back to
her typewriter and murmured: "Any
way, there's no green in them." This
innocent retort had the effect of a
rebuff, and Miss Ilarr's popularity
"went off a point" with the clerk. But
gbe could be very gracious without
stepping serosa the limitations of per
fect decorum, ansl her calm amiability
of disposition ;nd habitual cheerful
ness of expression intrenched her pop
ularity without permitting familiar
ity. Capt. Hugh Baldwin, U. B. A., came
to- the Packingham to "recuperate"
after a period of detached service in
South America. He was tall, sun
burned, blond, good to look at and
distinguished, with all the frank gtn
tility of a eoldier and an offlrer. Of
ill her customers Miss Barr had found
Capt. Baldwin the most interesting.
He was friendly without being obtru
ive, gay without being illy and ro
spectful without being distant. The
ilert beauty had found out a great
nany things about him in the course
.if a week, for he wrote to Mrs. Bald
win every day. He had assured her
;hat "he didn't know how soon he'd
be home' because he was tHl "far
'riim well," etc. These seemingly un
warranted explanations gave Miss
larr the Idea that the handsome cap
vain was something of a rogue, for she
iac never seen a finer example of ro
bust manhood.
The number of gay young men who
tailed on him seemed to indicate that
ie might be what she vaguely sus
ected as "one of the boys." Some
imps he wrote letters to other women
han Mrs. Baldwin, and, although
fiese were usually noncommittal and
if the jolly sort that might well pass
between n jolly bachelor and his so
iieVy acquaintances, yet Miss Barr
ancied that they were not the kind
t letters she would like her husband
p be writing if she were m.irried.
'"hen, thought the girl, "he has ohil
'ren. Let's see. He mentioned Amy,
'om, Catherine and Baby Hugh.
Tmph! 1 think he is pretty gay for a
tan of family." It was not till he be
,nthe practice of leaving flowers and
tonbons on her desk that Helen awak-
ned to a realization of Capt. HuliS
vin's possible villainy. Without re
acting that his character, good or
iad, should in no way interfere with
' er pwtce of mind, she began to worry,
.Itleve and get pale. She knew that
';wife was urging him to come home,
nd she was sure that his trumped-up
souses were ell her frivolous or ut
erly untrue. Finally she asked him
r "pleuse stop giving her presents,"
'iut try as she might she couldn't find
in excuse for mentioning his wife and
its duty toward his family. "I'm not
apposed to know anything about
hat," she thought, and yet she puz
led over the question whether his
andid display of hirt own duplicity
vne not proof positive that he was a ;
hunieless wretch, making love) to an 1
nnocent girl without even taking tho
reeaution to conceal bis life oltllga- !
lions. ' I
And yet she could not "oppress tli
fonseiousness of pleasure In his pres
ence. He quit his gift giving and dic
tated more letters, which proved that
his wife was euspiclous and had per
haps accused him of Infidelity of some
kind. He never diseused the con
tents of these letters with Helen, but
rattled away ns if she were n mere ma
chine, and then changed the subject
to any of a hundred delightful themes
of which he seemed to be anxious to
hear her talk. When at Inst he seemed
to drift into a more serious frame of
mind and habit, Miss Itarr found her
self unreasonably gratified. Her heart
gave a joyful bound one day when
he heard him tell n friend one day
that he was "on the water wagon,"
but an access of virtuous anger seized
her that same evening, when, for the
first time, he came to her and asked
quite calmly and respectfully, if she
would go to the theater with him. She
made a pitiful effort to "freeze him"
with her answer, but her eyes were
trimming before she could turn away,
and she said nothing. He walked away,
nnd from the corner of her downcast
eye she could see that he went into
the buffet.
The unhappy girl spent a sleepless
night, for she had neither parent nor
relative to share her troubles. A
dozen times she resoKed to beg of
('apt. Baldwin to quit the hotel and go
home to his wife. She thought of
writ ing to him, or refusing to take his
letters, of ignoring him, and finally
resolved to do his work if he persisted,
but remain deaf nd blind to his per
sonal attentions as she had done with
every other man at the hotel. Hut her
tired heart was in a flutter again the
moment she got behind the railing of
her little oflioe, for she saw the cap
tain strolling nervously about the ro
tunda. She kept her eyes on her work,
but she know he was watching her.
Her worTi was cleared away and she
was ready to leave for lunchcou when
he cutne suddenly to the desk and
said:
"Take a couple of letters, please,
miss?" She did not look up, but she
was aware of n strange, hard note in
his voice. He began with n letter to
"Dear Catherine," as usual, and Miss
Barr was wondering whnt new sub
terfuge he would palm off on his wife,
when he began: "You have been n
good sister-in-law to me, and I hope
you will succeed in satisfying my
brother, thaf "
Miss Burr's cheeks were aflame with
excitement. Catherine was not his
wife, then! She could hear her heart
beat the music of those words. But
when he came to the end of thut letter
and said: "The fact is, I've made up
my mind to get married and settle
down if the girl will have nie," Miss
Barr got pale again and trembled.
But the worst was to come. She could
have struck him when he leaned
across the rail nnd said: "JCow, I want
you to write out a proposal for me."
She didn't hear exactly what followed.
Her trained fingers flew mechanically
over the keys as he dictated a stilted
and very'formal proposal, beginning
"Dear Miss' and ending "Your anxious
nnd devoted Hugh Baldwin."
"What's tho address?" she asked,
coldly.
"Here's the envelope," he said in
frigid tones.
She picked it up with quivering
fingers, said: "Fifty cents, please,"
and rend the address "Miss Helen
Barr, Hotel Packingham, City."
And they stood there smiling into
each other's eyes. Chicago Keeord-Hertild.
DEFOE'S PREVISION.
The Martinique Disaster Rernlle.HI
Memorable Hoax on Lon
doner In 1T1M.
The terrible news from St. Vincent,
following the impression that this
isUind had escaped the volcanic del
uge which has cremated half Mar
tinique, at once recalls and reverses
the famous hoax by which Daniel De
foe led all London to believe, in 1718,
that the whole island of St. Vincent
had been blown np nnd obliterated,
says the London. Academy. On the
basis of his own imagination, or on
some thin ship story, Defoe wrote in
Mist's JournaV a circumstantial ac
count of the destruction of this is
land, giving such detail's as, with all
our facilities' of news transmissions,
we wait or in vain to-day. After lead
ing up very gradually to the catastro
phe, he told his readers that "on the
night of the said 20th, about mid
night, the whole island of St. Vin
cent rose up in the air, with a most
dreadful eruption of Fire from under
neath the Earth, and on inconceivable
Noise in the Air at its rising up, that
it was not only blown, but blown out
of the very sen, with a dreadful force,
as if it were torn up by the Boots,
or blown up from the Foundations of
the Eurth." Finally, to bring the event
home to his readers, he recalled an
accident in a foundry in Moorfields,
where a quantity of liquid gunmetal
coming in contact with some water
had blown up the works just as a
journalist of to-day might perhaps re
call the recent destructive lire in the
same district to suggest, however
faintly,, the storm of fire which wept
over these hapless islund recently.

"To tho Americans We tiKk you to

"We say to you, If you do not wish

of which were strong. The people had

The board of health of tha city of

tHut there Is n clash between the
